Q: What if my child turns in a device that was not checked out to them?

Q: My child turned in their device and charger--but a fine was still issued. Why?

  • Sometimes, students checked out devices/chargers for the day because they did not have the device/charger checked out to them. If these devices/chargers were not returned at the end of the day, they are still checked out to them, and they are responsible for them.

Q: Will my child get a device next school year?

  • Currently the plan is for all secondary students to be issued a device next school year.
